The Model 3 is Tesla’s best-selling model, not surprising given it’s currently the most affordable Tesla model. Marketed as sports luxury sedan, the Model 3 has been well regarded for its elegant styling, strong performance and next-generation technology. Yet, there’s room for improvement and it’s not to the car itself but in the form of an expanded line-up.
Yes, how about a Model 3 hatch? While the sedan is always non offensive, there’re people who always prefer the hatch body shape. And automotive renderer Sugar Design is showing us just how much potential the Model 3 in hatch form has. Looking more like official photos from Tesla itself than renderings, the Model 3 hatch neatly and harmoniously blends the front half of the sedan body with a sporty hatchback. Everything looks right and nothing seems out of place or tacky.
Given how good the Model 3 hatch looks – as evident by this render, Tesla should seriously consider making one and expand the Model 3’s appeal.
The Model 3 hatch shown here is based on the Performance variant. The range-topping model features dual electric motors – one at each axle – affording all-wheel drive, plus the high capacity battery pack. It develops a combined output of 335kW and a staggering 638Nm of torque, good for a 0 to 100km/h sprint time of just 3.4 seconds.
